Did you know that Kapuso actress Bea Binene was a contender of the reality show Starstruck Kids back in 2004? She was only 7 years young then and that jumpstarted her showbiz career.
Fast forward fifteen years later, Bea has been a long time actress for GMA 7 and has had TV series year in and year out.
Her debut movie back in 2010 was Si Agimat at si Enteng Kabisote.
And for this year, she's starring in Ang Sikreto ng Piso, an independent film directed by Perry Escano. Bea plays a school teacher.
This movie boasts of the gathering of the country/s funniest and best comedians in the likes of Lou Veloso Long Mejia Joyce Peñas Pilarsky Nico Nicolas Ricky Rivero Beverly Salviejo Wacky Kiray Garry Lim Raphael Robes
Micah Musa Amberlicious and Abel Napuran.
The film leads include real life couple Gelli de Belen and Ariel Rivera who are also making a screen comeback from their last appearance in 1997.
Intoducing in the film is Angelica Ulip, who portrays the daughter of Ariel and Gelli.
A family comedy movie, inspired by actual events on the smuggle of the Philippine peso coin in 2006.
In order to build wealth effectively, Ronnie (Ariel Rivera) has to make sacrifices to save up for the future of his wife (Gelli De Belen) and daughter (Angelica Ulip). He is forced to accept an odd job that promises higher income — one that requires him to gather as much one peso coin as he could. It is only a matter of time when he discovers why these coins are being smuggled abroad. What secrets do these coins hold?
I was able to ask Bea during a recent pocket interview session how was it like working with both Gelli and Ariel?
"Masaya po silang kasama," her initial reply,
"Si Ms Gelli nakasama ko na before when we did the show "Sis" and si Kuya Ariel we worked together sa Mulawin VS Ravena naman."
Bea is also thankful having been casted for a school teacher role in the film and she got to share moments with the best comedians in the likes of Lou Veloso, Beverly Salviejo, Ricky Rivero and Long Mejia among others.
She is also joined by Ms. Joyce Pena Pilarsky, who also co-produced the film.
"Hindi lang masaya ang film na ito, kungdi kapupulutan din sya ng aral and malalaman natin ano nga ba ang sikreto ng piso?"
At 21, Bea works hard as an actress and dutiful daughter for her family. Her earnings goes to support her sibling who goes to school.
She is also thankful to her Mother Network in GMA for keeping her busy with teleseryes and hosting and co-hosting stints at News TV.
Bea hopes that the network also recognizes the loyalty of most of their artists which she values a lot.
We wish nothing but the very best to Bea who is a clear example of a passionate and dedicated artist to her well loved craft.
She continues to inspire and motivate others to not just be good but great in whatever endeavor they are in.
